    Hmmm..... Not sure what you are talking about and how its relevant to this conversation. The question was whether or not there are "badass" Jedi, as in ones that are, for lack of a better name, blacksheep Jedi.

    Joleen Bindo. From Knights of the Old Republic, also from Bioware, and he also exists in the ToR continuity (in the distant past though).

    If you want to know how far you can go as a Jedi without falling to the Dark Side, I guess you can start with that character, and from there use your imagination and come up with an own character who similarly doesnt follow the Jedi code. Not sure if you will accept him as "badass", but he sure demonstrates that disobedience and maybe even a "renegade" path might be possible.

    I'm not allowed to post links yet, please look him up on youtube. He's like, the cynical humorous Morgan Freeman-Jedi with some nice stories (and probably dirty jokes).

    He's not officially "employed" by anyone (he lives an exiles life), but he has fully developed Jedi-Powers, and decides to join the protagonist to safe the Galaxy from the Sith. He can give the impression that he's "neutral", but it gets obvious that he belongs to the light side really.

    I looked Jolee Bindo up, and he's pretty awesome. That's what I was looking for, a jedi who isn't afraid to be silly and show his true emotions, rather than being a "turn the other cheek hear no evil speak no evil" type.

    Closest example of your criteria I could think of. His last stand was fucking epic, and certainly qualifies as badass.

    Myself I find Kyle Katarn pretty badass. Probably my favourite jedi.

    Edit: link for those who are interested:

    This guy didn't exactly turn to the darkside or anything, but he is pretty badass.

    Is this restricted to characters in the old republic era? I feel like it must be, given all the comments about "herp derp jedi cant have relationships" when the new order after the fall of the empire had a....somewhat different approach.
    Actually, Mr. Lennon, I CAN imagine a world with no hatred, religion, war, or violence.
    I can also imagine attacking such a world, because they would never see it coming.

    GAH you posted Ganner before i could, dude was a true badass, and lets not forget, Anakin Solo, 16 year old jedi who could hold his own against multiple Yuuzhan Vong warriors who could defeat some full fledged jedi knights in one on one combat.

    Depends on what you mean by badass I suppose...not all Jedi are necessarily celibate either, it's only the more "recent" (ie, movie) timeline (and maybe a few hundred years prior, I'm suspecting myself it's only after they thought they wiped out the Sith they instituted the whole celibacy thing) that the Jedis are really strict on that; going to TOR and older, you can find several examples of Jedi couples and some children out there, and obviously the EU stuff after the movies support this as well.

    That being said, to me badass means kicking ass, which almost all Jedi are capable of. Examples, look at Obi Wan, Yoda, Revan, etc. The dude Malgus killed in the Deceived trailer was apparently a top flight master as well.

    General Hoth from the first Darth Bane book was a B.A.M.F IMO.

    Mace

    Freakin

    WINDU

    he looked at the Lightsaber forms other people used, though yeah, they're pretty cool... but I want one that's like... 100x more badass... hmm.. that doesn't exist.. guess I'll just have to dig up some ancient form that's been disallowed by the Jedi for being too close to the Dark Side, and fix it, making it my own style.

    Vapaad FTW my Sentinal is going Watchman, just so he can use Juyo
    Reading A Song of Ice and Fire is like playing with an adorable puppy, then someone comes up out of nowhere, shoots the puppy and punches you in the face.

    Stands in front of 100 enemies with 10% health left "Myeh, I'll save my potions for when I REALLY need them." - every rpg player ever.

    Mace Windu was probably one of the most boring and static characters in Star Wars' history. On the other hand, George was never an actor director, and he had no idea how to properly write characters.
    So, basically... I guess Luke Skywalker matches that description pretty nicely?

    Other than that, pfft. Nothing about the prequel jedis was awesome or "badass".
    The basic idea, sure, it could've worked out in a proper character-driven plotline. But the execution was all wrong and sterile and cynical. Argh.
    It boggles the mind.

    Luke had a short love affair with the darkside.

    Yeah I don't know why people trash the EU so much.... some of the best stories are there, imo.

    The stories told without Lucas' self obsession you mean. But my favorite Jedi of all time was A'Sharad Hett. The fact that they forced him darkside after Order 66 I discount as hyberbole and complete slander. Specially since he figured out what Anakin did to the Sand People before he became a Knight and chose to make Anakin fess up to it.

    "Which one?"

    All I know is I hope Ganner isn't a restricted name in SWTOR, because that is totally what I want to name my jedi.
